Funny Haha

Where has all the laughter gone? Here I go sounding a thousand years old again, but who is next in the long line of super funnymen or women? Used to be there were a handful of comics that were at the top and then it tapered down. In the 50’s you had George Burns, JackContinue reading “Funny Haha”

Birthday Cakes

I can only remember my early birthdays on faded little reels and browning pictures. Whether I was dressed as Zorro, or atop a pony reciting Shakespeare, the star of the whole show was definitely not me. It was the cake. I think when I was three or four I got this little gay gene goingContinue reading “Birthday Cakes”

Coming Back Strong

It has been raining for two straight days, but today it cleared up beautifully. It sounds easy enough to come back strong after suffering a loss doesn’t it? Try harder. Don’t give up.

I don’t care how small the little bastards are, I don’t want to touch them. I have been fortunate not to have had to grown up with mice runningContinue reading “Mice”

Hell, a part of me still reacts and that little stupid voice inside me says “you can still do it. You should apply.” I have been officiallyContinue reading “Now Hiring”

Road Trip

After much chagrin and frustration, I have finally convinced Domestic Despot Osama bin KAREN to let me put together a mid-week trip up in the High Sierras of California and then over to the coast for a stop at my big brother Ed’s in Ventura for a few days. I have fond memories of Ventura,Continue reading “Road Trip”
